[cheers and applause] second, my plan will cut our oil imports in half by 2020 so we control more of our own energy here in america. megyn: and here's a look at why the president stayed in florida after last night's debate in boca raton. the latest polling average from realclearpolitics.com that averages all the polls shows romney leading among likely voters with nearly 48.5% and the president averaging around 46.5%. if you look at the more recent polling, it looks very much in governor romney's favor. we've told you earlier that suffolk polling pulled out a while back saying they don't believe that's competitive any longer although clearly team obama disagrees with that. critical state, as you know, in this election. governor romney, meantime, now working to shore up support in the nevada with paul ryan. the pair set to appear in henderson together just about a couple of hours from now. nevada is another battleground this year, and you can see why the governor is there. t
is waiting for the united states to act. helima croft is with us, senior geopolitical strategist from barclays. what does that mean? they think the u.s. is going to come in? >> they were asking when the united states is going to come in. they said the security situation is deteriorating. increasing attacks on turkish soldiers coming from syria. they are wondering when the united states do what it did in libya really provide strong support for the rebels. i was sort of alarming them when i said i don't think the united states is going to come in any time soon so really turkey is on its own. dagen: tell us, helima, what's at stake here. syria doesn't produce much oil at all, and then turkey, but then you have to factor in iraq, the critical nature of the production out of iraq to offset what we've lost -- the world has lost rather coming out of iran. >> nowhere else can we add so much oil to the market from conventional supply as iraq. the report that just came out today talking about iraq going to 6 million barrels a day by 2020. no other country can put an additional 3 million barrels
opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighting efforts led by the then-senior virginia senator. when someone who will fight and that is what i will do is your next to none state senator. >> if mr. allen, your opening statement. >> thank you. it's much better future than what we are having to endure these days. that is why i put forward a detailed plan. my blueprint for america to get an economy and stronger jobs. the question is which one of us can be accounted upon. you may have read an article that was comparing our two governorships. the call me when the most accomplished modern governors with major improvements in public education, safety, welfare reform, a
the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them and tighten the sanctions we currently have. we have some of toughest sanctions yet on iran. the toughest in history under the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just hav
with the united states. i share that hope but hope is not a strategy. there will also be familiar themes that we expect to hear here. the significance of avoiding defense cuts, specifically referring to sequestration and could affect tens of thousands of people here in virginia specifically. the need to reinvest in the military and the significance of working closely with america's allies. a lot of these contrasts rhetorical more than actual contrasts and witness. he's been vague as some noticed about policy differences with the president but one place where he'll show a difference is on syria. more activist public position and suggesting that the rebels in that country's civil war to be armed and attack the president effectively prosecuting the terrorist attack as he'll describe it that led the death of four americans at the consulate there and libya and say among other things the attack on the consulate in benghazi was likely the work of the same forces that attacked our homeland on september 11th, one. he'll draw that link between that attack and al qaeda. thomas? >> nbc's peter alexander tra
have it tammy baldwin running for the united states senate here and wisconsin. i believe she is also what we call the house of representatives, did she give up her thing and there as the house of representatives when she ran? i am not sure. but i want to say, i am really -- you talk about medicare. when they took away $716 billion of medicare, that scares me. also, how can you broach or stand up for, i am sorry, but our president. and in benghazi, when that whole group allied for weeks on what happened. -- when the whole group lied. when the new two hours later the truth. i am sorry for you, sir. and you talk about spending money, about a recall, $13 million before the recall. ridiculous. thank you. guest: there's a lot going on and that col. let us see what i can do to address it. tammy baldwin is representing the district since 1998. she did give up her seat to run for the united states senate. the democrat is one to the next member of congress. and reference to the $716 billion, that was money that was allocated to actually defray costs and make medicare solvent for a little longe
in the united states. not just montana. they are competing with other emerging economies across the planet. we have to invest in our cells. -- in ourselves. i was astonished knowing the importance of a quality education when my opponent voted to slash grants and voted to increase the interest payments on student loans. that is how i went to school. that is how thousands of nevada at middle income families go to school. they depend on it. my opponent voted to slash. and he in -- he voted to double. as far as the department of education is concerned, at the lincoln county dinner, he very clearly said it is exactly what he would do, eliminate the department of education. it was picked up by "the times." >> thank you. >> that is not accurate but that is fine. i am not surprised she will continue with that. my opponent in 2010 voted against the loan program. it helped generations of americans get their education. she has to be careful with what she said. my wife is a schoolteacher. she taught school and works within school districts. she understands the importance of parents, teachers, and principl
, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe of the united states and he was doubling down on those controversial remarks. he made a few months ago, that russia was america's number one geostrategic foe. >> interesting on syria, i was listening to fareed zakaria, he noted the passive voice. we're wall for it as you mentioned, the foreign policy debate in two weeks. wolf blitzer, we'll talk next hour. i have more que
security officer in libya testified, as well. here is what he said, that the united states could not count on lib jab security forces to help with security adequately. >> the libyan temporary government was unable to extend security assets to diplomatic missions in the ways we are expecting to see around the world. we could not rely on the libyan government for security, intelligence, and law enforcement help to identify emerging threats or to ask them for assistance in mitigating threats. >>shepard: before today, he told the committee in private in a private interview, that a state department official who oversees diplomatic security wanted to keep the number of security personnel in benghazi "artificially low." today, she suggested to the committee securing diplomatic missions around the globe and a constant struggle. >> i worked closely with more than 275 facilities around the world determining the right legal of security for each one. it is intensive and ongoing evolving process that i appreciate and understand from my own time on the ground as a diplomatic security for. >>shepard: she
, if the world, if the united states would just give -- would create a no-fly zone or allow the rebels to have rockets, he said that the war here that's claimed so many lives and killed so -- and caused so many people to be on the run, would end in two days, andrea? >> and ann, one of the people -- one of the refugees whom you spoke to, was a displaced woman named hoda. talk to me about her. it was a commelling interview -- compelling interview. >> she's one of about a million people who are basically living on the run inside syria, about half of them according to the united nations children, and she's living in a tent. she had just arrived that day. she arrived because her son was hurt in an aerial strike. he was wounded on his head and also in his leg. he had gotten some hospital care, but he was recovering in this tent and she was very upset. she was crying and saying, you know, essentially to the pilot of the plane, do you not have children? you know, and to president bashar assad, do you not -- do you want to see your children suffering in the way that is -- my son is suffering. she was v

advised president obama on this, how to get jobs back into the united states. he's a senior partner and managing director of the boston consulting group and he's lucky enough to grab him as he's traveling all over the world, he's in brazil today. off the bat, the true report card on the manufacturing jobs in the last four years, are these jobs we just lost and we have been hemorrhaging in the four years, are we ever going to get them back? >> nice to be with you and your audience, ashleigh. we're starting to see changes in the economy. we have to remember where we came from. in 2008, the economy was in total meltdown. there was concerns about massive depression like 1929. what the government did, was to stabilize the economy so it didn't go into free fall. we're looking at a period of slow growth because we deferred this problem. however, without deferring the problem, we would have had a depression. >> we heard a t of arguing back and forth in the debate the other night, the president suggesting there are -- this defid defied logic, defensive outsource. let me play that moment and
17th -- >> simply on the basis of what ambassador rice has publicly disclosed, does the united states government regard what happened in benghazi as an act of terror in. >> again, i'm not going to put labels on this until we have a complete investigation, okay? >> so you don't regard it as an act of terrorism? >> i don't think we know enough. i don't think we know enough. >> september 18th on the david letterman show -- >> is this an act of war? are we at war here? what happens here? >> here's what happened. you had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who is a extremely offensive video directed at muhammad -- >> making fun of the prophet muhammad. >> making fun of the prophet muhammad. so this caused great offense if much of the muslim world, but what also happened was extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies including the one, the consulate in libya. >> september 19th on capitol hill, the head of the national counterterrorism center, the only administration official to testify so far. >> questi
is raising our way over the top. i am the only person in the united states running for office right now who supports gay marriage, who is pro-choice that is being attacked on the extreme tea party extremist. it doesn't make any sense. it's laughable and the fact of the matter is i do have a record at 26 years of public service to over 10,000 votes in the legislature. and believe me, if i had a record of extremism, it would have been something you would have heard about long ago. and i do think that right now it speaks to the congressman's credibility more than nine, because i'm talking to people all around the district and i am trying to say that the country is at an important point right now we really have to move for them. he people in washington are going to work together and i do that at the state house. i have the fiscal emergencies, one of them 1990 was a bad one. the state was almost bankrupt. and i fought with democrats and the governor of the time to read we all got together. nobody got what they wanted but they put the straight back on track and if you look what is going on in was
of the united states particularly in light of the fact there were two attacks on april and june. one was an ied that blew a hole in the wall. there was attempted assassination of the british ambassador in benghazi. the question is what did the president know, what did he know about it and what did he do about it? that is the what the president of the united states responsibility is. >> reporter: by the way in the a separate interview secretary clinton deflect ad question about her own aspirations for a presidential run in 2016. gin that. jenna: we'll talk more about this developing story in the next several hours. jails, thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you. jon: right now a major announcement about social security benefits. fed says millions will see increase in their monthly payments but it might not be the kind of number you expect. steve centanni following the story from washington. >> reporter: hi, jon. 56 americans receiving social security will see their checks go up but only 1.7% next year. this is tied to the rate of inflation just released this morning by the bureau of labor st
back to the united states which shows the consequences of the botched operation go way beyond the death of brian terry. >> reporter: this is information thed a spin straition deprattly wanted and successfully kept secret for more than a year. the names and phase of the innocent people killed in mexico with guns sold and smuggled with u.s. help under fast and furio furious. >> reporter: a home covered in blood after gang members kill 16, emteenagers at a birthday party. guns used in the massacre traced to the u.s. operation fast and furious. >> they are waiting for an answer. they want to know what happened and why they didn't stop these guns from leaving the united states and ending up in these crimes. >> reporter: spanish language television univision found there two dozen guns matched operation fast and furious. this woman lost two sons to fast and furious guns. >> they feel helpless. we interviewed one of them and they say who is going to pay for this? >> reporter: it could be the u.s. government should the family of brian terry prevail in their wrongful death claim. >> that will be
a successful terrorist attack in the united states, looking at threats from abroad and threats from within. >> reporter: but the reality is according to the investigation, reports were often generated by violating civil liberties and misusing taxpayer funds by buying big screen tvs to monitor the channels. here is part of homeland's security's response. the committee report is out of date, inaccurate and misleading. in preparing the report the committee refused to review relevant data including relevant information pertinent to their findings. senator susan collins is concerned and said in a statement as responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars the dhs must insure that the dollars are spent in ways that enhance our security. the report says they often produced reports that were irrelevant or useless. jamie: both president obama and governor romney have a chance to recharge the race tonight. our next guest says it's all good governor romney tonight. we'll talk to the man who managed ronald ray gans landsslide win for the presidency. >> governor, there you go again. r after seeing her doctor
, would not hear out his contender. but for a sitting vice president of the united states, to act as though he holds a younger challenger in total contempt, you have to wonder for voters in their 20s and 30s who had ever been treated like that by somebody older than him, how it made them feel to see paul ryan be jeered at by an incumbent vice president of the united states. i know that the vice president was trying to show that he was tough and would attack, but his countenance did not match up with the moment. megyn: i think you've hit on an interesting point. having anchored this broadcast for several years, the things that affects viewers more than anything else is one to two participants talk over each other. they don't like the debates, they like a fiery debate and a robust back and forth, but they get upset when one person won't let the other person speak. we saw mitt romney very aggressive with president obama last week. you know, trying to have the last word and make a final point. and it didn't seem to me that he disabled barack obama's ability to be heard. did we see som
transport oil from canada to the united states? it sparked a whole lot of controversy including lawsuits from oil refineries, criticism from environmentalists. the president had to weigh in as well. whatever happened to it? where does it stand today? liz macdonald with the fox business network has a live update on that. liz? >> reporter: good to be with you, jenna. basically transcanada is still waiting for the state department to decide next year on whether or not it can build the keystone pipeline out of canada, through nebraska, all the way down into cushing and then into the gulf coast. it is building from cushing to the gulf coast right now. but because still crosses you know, an international border the state department has to weigh in and basically approve the permit before transcanada can move on the upper part of that keystone pipeline. jenna: a little bit of a wait and see right now. >> yeah, that's right. jenna: so much about jobs i understand. there is new information about what the oil industry and other industries related to energy really, how it impacts job growth here in
is from students. >> military engagement in afghanistan, what course should the united states pursued in this country specifically in the middle east generally? >>moderater: mr. howell, you are first. howell: listen, the middle east is such a powder keg over there. we have to move forward cautiously and with effectiveness. one thing i am telling you right now, i want us out of afghanistan tomorrow. we are not winning the war that no one will win. the british tried, the russians tried. we spend $300 million a day. we spend $80 billion on the infrastructure of afghanistan. ladies and gentlemen, we have to move cautiously, but we have to get out of there quickly and efficiently. we have to make sure that iran will never have a nuclear weapon. we can do that through sanctions , intelligence that we have back in our country. ladies and gentlemen, we must protect the assets of israel. they are a friend, and we must be able to be over there and make sure we are doing the right things for the right reasons. i am telling you right now there, we have had to unfunded worst which has led this cou
to witness it today personally. it's my honor to introduce to all of you the president of the united states. >> good job, chris. i have to say that governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back, even stronger than before. >> let me get to this, governor rendell. you're a pro. and i think you can tell people right now, in a couple of minutes, how different it is being a professional politician from being your average, passionate political person, who roots for one side against the other. but doesn't understand what it's like to work day to day with somebody from the other political party, and finding common ground. you've done it, when you worked with w. when he was president. explain how that works. you put aside the partisanship and you work together. >> well, you have to. and particularly in an emergency management. because the whole syste
to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states, mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. >> and how's this for trail mix? mitt romney got more than he bargained for when he posed at chipotle after ordering a burrito bowl in a photo op that's an internet sensation. good day, andrea mitchell live in denver at the site of tonight's presidential debate, the first time in five years that barack obama and mitt romney are going to be face-to-face in what the local newspaper is headlining as the duel in denver. joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com. first of all, this, the big face-off, let's talk about the state of the race. we have new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll numbers showing a slight tightening in the race. fou looks as though mitt romney is in the national polls slightly narrowing the gap. other problems within those numbers, problems for romney. >> yeah. i mean first of all let me say i love duel in denver. i'm a big fan of that one. i think andrea, look, las
